The Seton Fund
Established in 1981, The Seton Fund was the first fundraising foundation of the Seton Healthcare Family. Sister Gertrude Levy and then president, Gene Attal, created it on behalf of Seton. Since its creation, The Seton Fund’s main purpose is to support the mission and work of the Seton Healthcare Family. Through the support of the Central Texas community, it has been an integral part of the expansion of Seton Medical Center Austin, support of the Seton clinics and the capital campaign for Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas.
The Mission of the Seton Fund is to be the fund development and endowment arm of the Daughters of Charity healthcare ministry of Central Texas.
The support of the Seton Fund is limited to the Seton Family of Hospitals, with the exception of Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, Seton Medical Center Hays and Seton Medical Center Williamson. Its effort shall be exercised with wisdom and integrity, guided by the Vincentian spirit of respect, belief in the goodness of people, and love of the poor.
